No one should knowing put themselves into a position which increases the likelihood being a victim to a crime. Getting loaded in certain situations will do that.

However, being stupid does not magically legalize an assault.

I might say that a girl was stupid and shouldn’t have been surprised that she was raped because of the situation she allowed herself to be in. BUT, a very big but, the perpetrator of the crime is not legitimized. Rape is rape, a girl being stupid and drunk does not change that.

Leaving your car unlocked does not legalize car theft.

I’m speaking in general. I’m NOT say this girl was stupid. Not sufficient facts to comment on that.

I think we agree. I tell my kids - you can't always control what others do, but you can control the choices you make, and the situations in which you put yourselves.
